This article is a top-three list that is not comprehensive. But it should help create some awareness of the world of kitchen knives and give you some ideas! If you are confused about choosing Japanese knives for your Sushi Restaurant, this article will help you. A distinct world-class Japanese knifemaker produces each of these knives. It’s also worth mentioning that the prices run from $120 to $170. However, the cost worth the quality. They can last 30 years or more. Here are the top three best knives from Japan.
Global 7-Inch Santoku (G-48)
The world of kitchen knives was improved in the 80s by developing a series of high-heeled knives on the edge of fashion but were still offered at a fair price. However, in general, knives owe more to Western tradition than to Japanese tradition. That is why I call these Japanese actors because they graft one legacy of knife making onto another.
It’s not a noteworthy knifemaker (Interesting detail: Global injects the perfect amount of sand into the hollow handle so that it can be properly balanced). The vast majority of Global knives are not forged, but they are made of excellent and first-class steel, which has been studied and heat-treated to new sophistication levels.
This special edition, the G-48, is perfect for those who want performance but still want to be agile. Santoku’s short but wide layout offers a wide blade (it can adorn chopped celery) without the embarrassing amount of time. Try a G-2 or maybe a G-61. I have this santoku and I am ashamed to admit that I appreciate the margin so much that I can’t stand to cut it, but I can save it for many cuts, it will be great!
MAC MTH-80 – Professional Series 8-Inch Chef Knife
MAC knives is one of the best-kept secrets of the consumer kitchen knife market. Professionals know and always use this type of knife. Famous chefs like Thomas Keller and Charlie Trotter endorsed them as the ultimate cutting machine. But ask your usual place of residence, and you’ve probably never heard of it.
Japanese engineers and designers, such as Worldwide, have developed a new type of knife, a hybrid made of thinner, harder Japanese steel and a western shaped blade. They’re not as cool as the international ones, but they’re probably even sharper. And (like all over the world) they are not even forged, but they are highly mechanized.
The MTH-80 Professional is the workhorse of the various MAC product lines, and I think it’s by far the most popular because it offers maximum sharpness for the dollar. The welded reinforcement also creates an unusual combination of super-thin blade and extra weight, making it work in hand like a German knife. Want to take a ride?
Shun Classic 8-Inch Chef Knife
Shun, together with Global, is probably one of the most famous and popular Japanese manufacturers in the United States. Their flagship line, Shun Classic is beautiful and incredibly sharp. It can cut anything with high precision. This gives him the ability to maintain a 16-degree advantage over a longer period. The final highlight of the Shun Classic is the distinctive Pakkawood grip. It is similar to the unique. Consequently, it is really a different matter when the handle of an ordinary Western-style knife feels too fussy about everything.
